My First Botox Experience

Friday, December 4, 2015

Hi Beautiful, 
I could not believe that finally went for my first Botox last month. And I wanted to share my experience with you. Because I know that someone out there might have the same problem I'm dealing with. I'm a person who sweats excessively on certain part of my body. And the part I'm talking about is my armpit. I can be sweating all the time, when I'm nervous, when my face turns red, when i'm cold , when i'm hot, when I have good mood or bad mood. It is very uncomfortable and it is bothering me all the time. Excessive sweating is when you are sweating for no reason. This is my insecurity for the longest time ever, and I'm so happy that I finally go for Botox treatment. 

If you had the same problem like mine, you know how frustrating it can be. After I've done my first Botox injection, I'm very happy with the result. I felt so much different, my armpit is dry and I'm sweating only when it is necessary, for example the room is too hot(minimal sweating)  and also when I'm having my workout ( normal sweating). 

Where did I get my botox done ? 

I went to Premier Clinic at Bangsar for my consultation and also my treatment. My doctor is 
Dr. Aarthi Maria, she explained to me why some people do have excessive sweating problem. It is because some kind of nerve that acts like button around the neck, it can be switched on easily and thats why it id triggering the sweat glands, and become overactive. That is how it calls for more perspiration even it is not needed. This condition is called Hyperhidrosis. You can be over sweating of  your hand palms, feet , head and armpit. For me it is just my armpit, that's really bothering me. One of the treatment available for Hyperhidrosis is Botox. It is a simple procedure with almost no pain and you can see results within few days, but it is not permanent result, it can last up to 9 months.

How does botox work with Hyperhidrosis ? 

OnabotulinumtoxinA is a natural, purified protein with the ability to temporarily block the secretion of the chemical that is responsible for "turning on" the body's sweat glands. By blocking, or interrupting, this chemical messenger, botulinum toxin "turns off" sweating at the area where it has been injected. Botox injections are very shallow, meaning that the medicine is injected just below the surface of the skin, where it remains. - ( taken from here) This is a safe and effective treatment. You can notice the result after 2 - 4 days, sweat are reduce up to 80% ! 


How is the procedure ?


First, numb cream applied to the area that will be injected with botox. And I waited for a few minutes to let the numbing cream to do the work. Obviously to make me less painful for the injection later. 


This is how the doctor will sketch on the area to be treated. 



This is one of the treatment rooms at Premier Clinic, and this is where I'm going to relax and enjoy my treatment.



Dr. Aarthi injects the Botox on the area that she marked. It feels a little bit sting, almost no pain. The amount of botox for my treatment is around 30 units each arm. The amount of Botox will depends of your condition. The whole process can be done within 5 minutes or more if the area is big. But it is so quick for my armpit. 



Right after the injection,  I didn't have any side effect and pain. I'm back to my normal routine, no pain in the armpit. But I did feel like I did the arm exercise, and felt tired on the shoulder and armpit ( I'm not sure how to describe this ). I'm still sweating on the day I got my Botox done, but the next day, surprisingly 50% less sweat and the third day onwards it literally feel like no sweat at all. I was so happy and I keep touching my armpit because it feels amazing ! Zero sweat!  And until today, I will not sweat for no reason. The best feeling ever!  Dealing with my insecurity and it boosts up my confidence. The whole cost for my armpit area is around Rm2500, the cost will depend on how many units of botox you are using. I know that the cost is quite expensive, but excessive sweating is affecting my daily life and I get anxiety. I will work hard for that money and get it done, although this is not a permanent solution, I have to get another Botox maybe after 4- 9 months. But I will surely go back and do it because it is a life changing for me.
